Curvy and beautiful

Good Morning,
I can’t believe that it’s December already! Like the rest of you I am busy making cards for family and friends.
Today I would like to share a card I made using
I can’t say how happy I am to have found this ‘fluffy’ range of digital stamps.
Yeah, images that celebrate curves and ladies with ‘normal’ body shape!
These images are perfect for my beautiful niece, and so, here is her Christmas card.


The image is coloured with Promarkers.
The divine paper is from Giadolls - here.
I fussy cut some of the elements and mounted them on foam pads for the outer panels of the card.
The glitter is glass glitter from Chloe’s Creative Crafts.
The sentiment was made on the PC.

Bargain Christmas


Good Morning,
Today we have a brand new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.
As always its Anything Goes with the Optional Twist – Use Washi tape
I have to admit that washi tape isn’t one of my go to craft items, however when I spotted three rolls of washi tape in my local pound shop in my favourite colours I decided to buy them. Well 3 rolls for £1 was too good to miss.
I had no idea how I was going to use them but then decided to ick the tape in strips to create a design paper which I then die cut with a Spellbinders bauble die. I cut some foliage using a die I found on Amazon for some crazily cheap price and which cuts like a dream.
So I guess I could call this my bargain Christmas card.
